I want my own thread for these 2.

I got some Merino from eBay and it's amazing. I got this idea first for the black and then the white but I spun the white first because I already had a bobbin full of white. It was spun like my ladybug yarn, with 1 ply being solid and the other having random bursts of the other color(s) and then when I plied I did it right so the POPS are coiled. And awesome.
The white isn't Merino, but the deep colors are. I think the white is mostly Punta but also other random bits of wool. 9.3 oz, ~300 yards

All of the black and neon colors are Merino, and amazing! And apparently the sun came out while I took this pic. I promise the neon bits aren't glowing, though that would be cool if they were. ~4oz and 130 yards

Those are very cool, Jexxican! I love the effect of that last pic.  I bet in the right light it would glow!

Thanks bunny. You see now why I had to postpone making stuff so I could make your personal swap items? These simply had to be made!

Spidey, I know, right? Neon colors on their own can be eye sores but in moderation surrounded by black I think they really work magic. I'm hoping these will sell at market or the Potter's Guild Show I'm doing at the Civic Center in November (which happens to be my favorite holiday show each year to attend and the fact that I was invited to vend there absolutely just blows my mind and makes me giddy) but if they don't maybe I'll send you one for Christmas or something. Wink don't get too excited, though, and don't anyone else get jealous. They're some of my favorites and only favorites have been selling at market so far. *not trying to sell here, just talking about my yarn*

Market is done and I've also had them out at the Potter's Guild show at the civic center, and I think the white one sold but I still have that black POP! I don't know whether to be sad or not.

I LOVE this yarn! Black/neons and white/color is pretty much some of my favorite color combos ever. It looks just gorgeous Smiley
